You Can Start A Sentence With Because

[Music]

hello thank you so much for watching I

want to talk to you about this word

because because there are a lot of my

students that are really surprised that

they can actually start a sentence with

because so yes you can start a sentence

with because you just have to know how

now probably there was a really good

reason there's always a really good

reason why your teacher was telling you

don't start a sentence with because I

know when I was young I got told that as

well

don't start the sentence with because

and there was a reason why they were

telling you that and that's because we

often make a mistake when it comes to

starting a sentence with because so let

me show you how this works so normally

we have a sentence that maybe looks like

this he was tired because he ran 10

miles okay so if I want to start the

sentence with because I can I just take

that because and the actual cause right

because this guy is tired and the cause

of his tiredness is his running ten

miles

so I'm gonna take the cause and I'm

gonna put it first so I'll start the

sentence with because he ran ten miles

comma you need the comma yes and then I

put the effect after I put the he was

tired after the cause okay so it's the

same exact sentence same meaning I've

just taken the second part of the

sentence and put it first and I've taken

this part of the sentence and

it after so these sentences are both

correct the problem is this because he

ran ten miles because he ran ten miles

what what's the effect of that okay and

this is what we call him incomplete

sentence this is not grammatically

correct and this is where your teachers

going ah don't start a sentence with

because don't do it because we were

making this mistake okay so I always say

we learn the rules to break the rules so

yes we might have learned this rule you

can't ever start a sentence with because

but there was a certain reason why our

teachers told us that right to prevent

us from making this mistake but now that

we know right we've advanced in some

levels of knowledge and and wisdom and

now that we know that we have to include

both pieces we'll watch out for that

mistake we won't make that mistake so

yeah we learned this rule because don't

start a sense with it but then we can

break it because now we know better and

so I don't know it applies to English

grammar I feel like it also applies to

our life we come into the world we've

learned some rules and then once we know

they're like okay we get to break them

we learn the rules to break them so have

some fun with that you can start your

sentence with because don't be afraid

just know how to do it
